Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2013074925A1] Systems and methods to facilitate discounted volume purchasing of a product. A server system searches the internet to discover product information about a product. The server system generates a pack listing of product type, purchase quantity, and price per unit product based on the discovered product information, and posts the pack listing on a web site of the server system. The server system further facilitates the activation of the pack listing by a user of the web site to generate a non-public pack. The server system also facilitates the commitment of a supplier to the non-public pack and the transformation of the non-public pack to a public pack. The server system further facilitates the filling of the public pack via the web site and various aspects of purchasing via the pack once the pack is filled by the requisite committed purchase quantity.
